Japan Christian Missionary

Serving other cultures at home or abroad: Cross-Cultural Servanthood

If you want to get to know a Japan Christian missionary, why not start with the latest, most personal information - on a blog?  That's what we're going to do with these missionaries in Japan...

We should probably start with a long time blogger in a city many in the west have never even heard of.  The city is Saitama, a metropolis of well over a million people, and the blogg is Reflections of Refinement, online since 2004.

Saitama is actually a part of greater Tokyo, north of the city.  This missionary in Japan is teaching English and sharing her reflections and stories along with pictures of life in Japan.

Here's another Japan Christian missionary in the Tokyo area.  It's one of the newer blogs out there, again with lots of pictures and stories to share.

There are many more blogs we could mention, but here are just three more you can check out in Japan.  First, Holy Fire Japan, with lots of posts about the culture of Japan.  Next, The Penner Place, a long time favourite of visitors to this site.

Last but not least, be sure to visit The De La Courier.  More reflections on culture and ministry in Japan.
